Since uploading an update at a MS sight I have problems. Don't remember
what it was. I cant't print anything in Outlook express and after I boot
up I get this message
IEHOST
Runtime error 91
Object variable or with block variable not set

OK
I cannot drag anything onto E-Mail
Is there anything I can do to correct this mess?
THANKS

This is a Windows 95 group...are you using Windows 95?
What version of Internet Explorer do you have installed?

Open Windows Explorer or My Computer.
Click the View menu (or possibly Tools)> Options (or Folder Options)> View tab.
Make sure that "Show All Files" is selected.
Remove the check from the box for "Hide MS-DOS file extensions...."
Click OK.

Now, is it iehost.dll or iehost.exe?

Download, unzip, and run Hijack This from one of these locations:
http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html

Unzip to a folder other than your Desktop or the Temp folder, doubleclick
HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log"
button.
Press that, save the log somewhere you can find it (Desktop, My Documents, or
similar).
Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

Copy the log files and paste them into a reply to this post.

THANK'S Glee
I have no more error at startup and I can drag file;s into E-Mail so far it
looks like you have it all working. I have never used the tele or fax so
that don't bother me. I am 84 and was afraid I was going to have to use my
Compaq restore disk which is always a pain. I really apreciate how you
stuck with me.
I have been helped by you people several times before and hope you all keep
up the good work for old farts like me. Can't afford a new one.
THANK'S AGAIN.

That doesn't fix anything, it just allows you to see what file type it is.
AFAIK, iehost.exe is something you need to get rid of.
Please post back with the Hijack This log, as I mentioned previously.

Hey, 84 ain't an old fart....my dad will be 92 on Monday. Now THAT'S an old fart!
:-)

Are you still getting an iehost error? I find no reference to an iehost.exe file,
except as possible spyware/adware or parasite.

My standard post for spyware/adware is this:

Update your anti-virus app and then run a full-system virus scan.
(You AVG anti-virus needs updating, according to the version and database numbers in
your signature. I currently have ver. 6.0.682, database 444, dated May 11, 2004)

Use CWShredder, the CoolWeb removal tool, available here:
http://aumha.org/downloads/cwshredder.zip
http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html
http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html

In addition, install Ad-Aware 6 free edition, start it, click its 'Check for
Updates' link in the app to install updates, then use it to scan your system, and
remove what it finds.
Ad-Aware:
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

Install, update and run SpyBot Search & Destroy, scan your system, and then remove
the items in RED only.
SpyBot S&D:
http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download

Download, unzip, and run Hijack This from one of these locations:
http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html
http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html
http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/tools/HijackThis.e...
Unzip to a folder *other than* your Desktop or the Temp folder, doubleclick
HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log"
button.
Press that, save the log somewhere you can find it (Desktop, My Documents, or
similar).
Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

Copy the log files and paste them into a new post at one of these forums, or in a
reply to this post:

Sorry to get back to you so late....long day for me, and I should be going to bed by
now :-)

Click Start> Settings> Control Panel> Add\Remove Programs> Install/Uninstall tab.
Select all items with these names, and click the Remove button for each:
Bridge, b3d Projector, Gator, Webhancer, Web 3000, Delfin (or Delfin Media Player),
or Promulgate.

In Windows Explorer or My Computer, go to:
C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder.
Look for any items named Bridge, WinFavorites, or WildApp...if found, right-click
each, and click Remove from the menu that appears.


Then, run Hijack This again, and put a check in the box to the left of these items,
and these only:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Pcsv] C:\WINDOWS\system32\pcs\pcsvc.exe

O16 - DPF: {FF65677A-8977-48CA-916A-DFF81B037DF3} (WMService Class) -
http://download.overpro.com/WildApp.cab

O16 - DPF: {9C691A33-7DDA-4C2F-BE4C-C176083F35CF} -
http://www2.flingstone.com/cab/98ME/CDTInc/bridge.cab

Make sure you have only those three check-marked, and click the Fix button.

Are still having an issue with iehost.exe giving an error?

Do you have anything disabled in the Startup tab of the System Configuration Editor
(msconfig)?
Click Start> Run, type msconfig and click OK.
Click the Startup tab at top.
Are any items there un-checked, or do they all have check-marks beside them?

Please disregard the last part (reproduced below), as msconfig is a Win98 app, and
you won't have it on your Win95 computer.

You may have gotten a bad download of Ad-Aware.
Download a fresh copy and try installing again.

When you get the illegal operation error message from Msimn, what does it say when
you click the Details button? If it is still the error you mentioned previously,
re: a printer driver, try reinstalling the printer driver and software from the disc
that came with the printer.

Have you already downloaded and run CWShredder?

I don't need the images of the messages posted, and binary files are frowned upon in these groups.
:-)

The image you posted indicates that you ran CWShredder "Scan Only".
What you need to do is run CWShredder and click the "Fix" button, after first closing all programs and browser windows.
